Degree Residency Requirements

Residency requirements represent the total number of credit hours the student is required to earn at CNM prior to graduation in a certificate or degree program. 

If graduating from a catalog prior to the 2016-2018 catalog, at least 25 percent of the required total credit hours for a certificate and 12 credit hours for an associate degree must be completed at CNM.

If graduating from the 2016-2018 catalog, 15 credit hours for an associate degree must be completed at CNM. The required CNM credit hours for certificates depends on the size of the certificate and is listed below:
